New Driving Laws continued from page 3 are under 21 years of age on board the vehicle and alcohol is being transported. The designee shall be responsible for ensuring the rules are followed, and the safety of the underage passengers throughout the duration of the trip. • Electronic Wireless Communications (AB 1536, Miller) This law allows California drivers to use hands-free technology to talk and text while driving. This will require the use of a device that is specifically designed and configured to allow voice-operated and hands-free operation to dictate, send or listen to a text-based communication. The device is required to also be used in a voice-operated, hands- free manner to be in compliance with the law. Financial Responsibility and Insurance (AB 1708, Gatto)Drivers will now have the option of providing proof of insurance and registration on an electronic device (smartphone, tablet, etc.), when it is requested by law enforcement. • High Occupancy Toll Lanes (AB 2405, Blumenfield) This law creates the Choose Clean Cars Act, which allows cars with a Clean Air Vehicle Sticker free access to carpool lanes that are converted to High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes. • Autonomous Vehicles (SB 1298, Padilla)This new law allows driverless cars to be operated on public roads for testing purposes, provided that each vehicle has a fully licensed and bonded operator in the driver's seat to take control if necessary. The bill also instructs the Department of Motor Vehicles to adopt regulations that govern the licensing, bonding, testing and operation of autonomous vehicle technology. • Emergency Services: Seniors (SB 1047, Alquist) Similar to an AMBER Alert, the CHP would activate a "Silver Alert" upon request if a person, age 65 or older, is reported missing to a law enforcement agency and that agency determines that certain criteria is met. The criteria includes: the person is missing under unexplained or suspicious circumstances or the law enforcement agency believes the person is in danger due to age, health, mental or physical disability, environment or weather conditions; the person is in the company of a potentially dangerous person; or there are other factors indicating that the person may be in peril. Finally, there is information available, if given to the public, may assist in the safe recovery of the missing person. • Driver License (AB 2189, Cedillo) This law allows a driver's license applicant who provides Satisfactory proof that his or her presence in the United States is authorized under federal law, but who is not eligible for a social security account number, is eligible to receive an original driver's license if he or she continued on page 8 000 Visiting Our Romanian Sister City :iil;;ii!ii!ii!iii~i:! i!~iiii~i~i==' ;:,i¸ ; i~:i i . : Julian was a prominent subject at a meeting of the Horezu City Council last week. On December 19 the Council met with Kiki Munshi of the Julian Chamber of Commerce to reaffirm the Sister City connection between Horezu in Romania and Julian and Kiki was presented with a calendar for the Julian Chamber of Commerce. In the last Romanian local elections a new Mayor, Ilie Furtate, was chosen in a landslide for the then-Opposition party. Both Americans and Romanians reaffirmed, however, the principle that the relationship is institutional rather than personal and will continue. Mayor Furtate also said that he hopes to send a number of the Councillors to visit Julian in the coming year. HoreZu and Julian have much in common• Both are located in mountainous areas, beth are known for their apple crops, and both welcome tourists. During Kiki's Stay in Horezu she taught the cook at former Mayor (and Julian visitor) Cristi Nitu's pizza parlor, howto make American apple pie. "Or," Kiki said, "1 hope I taught her how to do it. Without a recipe, measuring cups, a pie tin--we used a small pizza pan--or an oven with a thermostat it will be a miracle if this pie comes out, but we did go over the basics of making pie pastry." Horezu is also the home of several 4H clubs started with American help. For two years a 4H member from Horezu visited Julian and the clubs now hope that some 4H members from Julian will visit them. What,You Need To Fight The Flu And Common Cold (StatePoint) While last year's cold and flu season was mild, experts say this year could bring you a wallop of sniffles and sneezes. While there is no cure for the cold or flu, despite what m0m says abdut her soup, over-the- counter (OTC) medications can provide relief for the most common symptoms. And these guidelines can help you better navigate the cold and flu aisle: Sneezing Got You Down? OTC antihistamines can provide relief from sneezing, runny noses and watery eyes by blocking the action of histamine, a chemical in the body that triggers congestion and upper respiratory discomfort. Constant Cough Cough suppressants, also known as antitussives, basically tell your brain to stop coughing. One commonly used cough suppressant is dextromethorphan, which relieves cough symptoms but doesn't speed recovery. If you're producing mucus, however, don't take a cough suppressant. Instead, look for an expectorant, a medicine rcial Celebrating • O0 Payment ptions that helps thin the mucus in the lungs and soothe an irritated respiratory tract. All Clogged Up/ Decongestants like pseudoephedrine (PSE) relieve a stuffy nose and congestion by actually narrowing the blood vessels in nasal passages so you can breathe more easily. PSEs are now located behind the pharmacy counter because they are an ingredient that can be used to make the illegal drug methamphetamine (moth). Rest assured though, PSE has been safely used for decades. If you're clogged up, consider treating your symptoms and doing your part to keep your community safer at the same time. Ask your pharmacist about new Nexafed 30mg pseudoephedrine HCI tablets, the next-generation PSE that provides the same effective cold and allergy relief from standard PSEs, but with technology that disrupts the extraction and conversion of pseudoephedrine into methamphetamine.
